33" Lousiville Slugger 243 model has to be one of my favorites, but the absolute favorite is the 33" Pro Maple model 73 made by Xbat. The bat just has a perfectly balanced feel to it for my swing. I think the larger knob helps a ton.


Lots of excellent bats! Hope to use Barnstable very soon!

Matt, some of the maple composites we have made have over 15,000 contacts on them and still going strong. Let us know how yours endures the punishment you give the bat. Tom

Happy New Year ! Look for some pre season maple and ash bat specials this month. Also do not get caught short of bats during the 2011 baseball season. Place orders early and great quality wood is now in stock. Tom
